Premature Evaluation: Pusha-T Daytona

Thirty-six seconds into Daytona, Pusha-T's new seven-song album, something becomes abundantly clear: Kanye West still knows how produce rap music. That wasn't a given.

Girls Frontline Gameplay

Recently, I got very addicted to a strategy mobile game that got officially released to the West called Girls' Frontline. The game is quite similar to Kancolle and maybe Azure Lane, but I find it to be much better. Also, it's very free to play friendly and you can actually get an even competitive playing field against whale players unlike most mobage games. Here's my gameplay. Official Website:

Kanye and Democrats

Kanye and Democrats U.S.A. –-( In the aftermath of the Kanye West dust-up, my heart goes out to the white people who control the Democratic Party. My pity stems from the hip-hop megastar's November announcement to his packed concert audience that he did not vote in the presidential election but if he had, he would have voted for Donald Trump. Then, on April 21, West took to his Twitter account, which has 28 million followers, to announce, “I love the way Candace Owens thinks.” Ow...

Is California’s high cost of housing cost scaring off job seekers?

Plenty of workers still move West each year for a new job in California. But the state’s high cost of housing may be deterring many other job seekers from moving into the state. Business leaders up and down the state say California’s expensive housing makes it challenging to recruit new workers — and to keep existing employees here. “You’re competing, now, with a low unemployment rate in California, and people have options,” said Mary Leslie, president of the Los Angeles Business Council. In Apr...

Existing-Home Sales Fizzle

After early gains in the season, April existing-home sales fizzled, with every region sputtering, the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) reports. Activity in April declined 2.5 percent to 5.46 million, down 1.4 percent from the prior year. Inventory increased 9.8 percent to 1.8 million, but, by comparison, was 6.3 percent lower than the prior year. “The root cause of the underperforming sales activity in much of the country so far this year continues to be the utter lack of available list...

Backed by $260 million in financing, his startup, Brii Biosciences, plans to deliver new medicines in new ways to patients in the most populous nation in the world. “I really believe that by serving as a bridge, ...

Ryan Partridge back on top with K&N Pro Series West

Ryan Partridge of Rancho Cucamonga did not compete in the K&N Pro Series West in 2017, a last-minute decision. However, his return to the circuit has been pretty spectacular. He’s atop the points standings after his dominant Sunrise Ford 150 win Saturday night at Orange Show Speedway in San Bernardino. He beat Bob Bruncati Racing teammate Derek Thomas and is three points ahead in the standings. In the four West races, Partridge has finished in the top five. It was also Partridge’s fifth career W...

New Data Shows Republicans’ Health Care Self-Own Is Taking Its Toll

When the Trump administration set about chipping away at the Affordable Care Act immediately upon taking office, it was widely predicted that the policy changes and outreach cuts would create the biggest hurdles for the groups most likely to vote Democratic — including young people, people of color, and the poor. Many months later, new reports on the national uninsured rate suggest the opposite may be true: the Trump administration’s health care agenda is whacking red states hardest. A new re...

Kobe Bryant Discusses Kanye West Slavery Comments, Says He ‘Completely’ Disagrees

NBA star Kobe Bryant is the latest personality to weigh in on Kanye West’s controversial comments about slavery. When Bryant surprised a group of 300 high school students at the pop-up festival called WE RISE in Los Angeles on Tuesday, he was questioned about West’s statements about slavery. “I’m sure the same way everybody else here in this room feels,” he answered. “‘What the hell are you talking about?’ I think that was my reaction as is everybody else’s reaction.”

How the Parallels Between Westworld and Shogun World Reflect Some of the Most Famous Movies of All Time

This week’s episode of Westworld, “Akane no Mai,” finally walked us into Shogun World, a sister park set in Japan’s Edo period. As different as the costumes, culture, and scenery are, viewers looking forward to the introduction of a brave new world, unlike anything we had seen on the show before, may have been slightly underwhelmed by some of the deliberately samey aspects of Shogun World. As our own Chris Evangelista put it in his review : “Shogun World may not be all it’s cracked up to be.”...

Can a Pope Change Moral Truth?

Pope Francis U.S.A. –-( That joking retort we heard as children, “Is the pope Catholic?” is starting to look like a serious question.Asked five years ago about a “gay lobby” in the Vatican, Pope Francis responded, “If a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge?”As judgment was thought to be part of the papal job description, traditional Catholics were startled at what the new pope had volunteered.Now the Holy Father has apparently fleshed out what he meant...

John Legend Talks Kanye West Tweets: ‘It Was A Little Surreal’

Jazz musician Wynton Marsalis says rap and hip-hop are ‘more damaging than a statue of Robert E. Lee

“My words are not that powerful. I started saying in 1985 I don’t think we should have a music talking about niggers and bitches and hoes. It had no impact. I’ve said it. I’ve repeated it. I still repeat it. To me that’s more damaging than a statue of Robert E. Lee.” Wynton Marsalis covered all the bases. Race. His role in New Orleans’s removal of Confederate statues last year. His deep antipathy to rap and hip-hop. And the damage he believes the genres inflict on African Americans. “I feel th...

The US Considered Declaring Russia A State Sponsor Of Terror, Then Dropped It

The attempt to kill a former Russian spy in England bore an ominous signature: The assailants used a lethal nerve agent of a type developed in the Soviet Union, and British investigators quickly concluded that only the Kremlin could have carried out such a sophisticated hit. Soon after the March attack, Rex Tillerson, then the U.S. secretary of state, ordered State Department officials to outline the case for designating Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism under U.S. law. Experts in the dep...

First Class Transatlantic Award Seats Available From West Coast

Premium cabin award space between the West Coast of the US and Europe is much tougher than non-stop space to the East Coast. Folks in the West generally need a domestic connection, then, to reach their international gateway city. So I thought it was notable enough to pass on non-stop first class award space from several cities out West to Europe.

Africa:Nevermind the Royal Wedding, Just Bring Back Our Stuff! #TiredofWaiting

[allAfrica] We all know the West looted the African continent. If it wasn't people who were abducted and made to be slaves, it was cultural artifacts and treasures that were carted off to be "studied" and "displayed" in Western museums. It's a thing.

Ex-Russian Spy Discharged From UK Hospital Two Months After Poisoning

LONDON (AP) — Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal has been discharged from a British hospital, more than two months after he was poisoned with a nerve agent and left fighting for his life, health officials said Friday. Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious in the English city of Salisbury on March 4, and spent weeks in critical condition. Yulia, 33, recovered more quickly than her father and was discharged last month. Salisbury District Hospital said Friday that all three peop...

California’s wildfire reality needs this new plan

Wildfires in California, which for the first time in living memory know no season — the state is dry at all times of the year — are vastly different from the old notion of “forest” fires in mostly unpopulated places. That’s why a fresh initiative out of Sacramento in Gov. Jerry Brown’s May revision of his budget forecast is right to include $96 million in new annual spending, from various funding sources, to support up-to-date firefighting that acknowledges new climate and exurban-growth realiti...

Y Ravine Cemetery, Beaumont-Hamel, France, Now Available on Geneanet

“Y” Ravine runs East and West about 800 metres South of the village, from “Station Road” to the front line of July 1916. It was a deep ravine with steep sides, lined with dug-outs, with extending two short arms at the West end. The village of Beaumont-Hamel was attacked and reached on 1 July, 1916, by units of the 29th Division (which included the Royal Newfoundland Regiment), but it could not be held.

"At one point in Betsy West’s and Julie Cohen’s new documentary 'RBG,' NPR correspondent Nina Totenberg claims that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg 'was doing something that was incredibly important to American women.'"

"At the end of 'RBG,' I was still struggling to figure out what Totenberg meant when she said 'something.'.. . West and Cohen certainly believe that Ginsburg is a significant figure, but the evidence they present is ultimately unconvincing.... Throughout the documentary, West and Cohen seem uninterested in undertaking a complex analysis of Ginsburg’s life and work... Various interviewees mention that Ginsburg has a unique ability to cross the political aisle and work with justices who hold oppos...
